I want to do something to improve the overall driveablility of my 1990 FJ62. It has stock 4.11 gears and A440 trans with 33" tires. Will changing axles to 4.56 or droping in an H55F and keeping the stock gears provide greater driveability?

LifeIsGood said:I like driving a manual trans and have always prefered the extra control it offers, but I wouldn't consider the swap if there wasn't a need for regearing somewhere in the driveline. Basically my number one goal is to have a truck that is more driveable in everyday conditions. That is accellerates faster, merges better, and pulls mountains easier, and gets better fuel economy. I realize that it is a FJ62 and that there are limits to my bank account. So assuming it is either gears or tranny, it sounds like I should save for the tranny.
